Sopheon developed a close integration of its Accolade® innovation system to Microsoft Azure Cloud Services for real-time sensor data interpretation and decision making  

MINNEAPOLIS – November 17, 2021 – Sopheon today announced that it participated in a joint research project that won the ITEA Award of Excellence. The project, PARTNER, (Patientcare Advancement with Responsive Technologies and Engagement Together) offers solutions to support the optimal patient journey for chronic diseases through health systems.

ITEA is the research, development and innovation cluster of Eureka, an international network of large industry, subject matter experts, start-ups, academia and customer organizations established in 1985 to encourage R&D cooperation. This ITEA project was coordinated by BARCO and had twenty participating partners, including Sopheon, from the academic and industrial world in the Netherlands, Belgium, Canada and South Korea.

Sopheon delivered a solution based on its Accolade innovation system with connection to Microsoft Azure Cloud Services. The solution automatically interprets massive data streams from vital sign sensors and other devices and generates meaningful notifications for the users. The Decision Support System (DSS) that Sopheon built contains a series of modules that ensure the interpretation of data is privacy-proof, and that the interpretation algorithms are legally approved.
